Hello, Bicycle: An Inspired Guide to the Two-Wheeled Life
So I'm in the market for a Beach Cruiser bike like the one that I had in college so we're taking a little deviation from our usual mystery fiction fare today.
I saw this little handbook and couldn't resist. Hello, Bicycle: An Inspired Guide to the Two-Wheeled Life by Anna Brones is the perfect refresher course on all things bicycle.
The book cycles through why riding bicycles is so great, what you need to know to ride, how to take care of your bike, activities on your bike and even comes with recipes for bike friendly snacks (like Chocolate Hazelnut Granola Bars, yum).
The chapters are short and easy to read. There's lots of white space and illustrations, so you can skip just to the subject you need, when you need it -- like how to change a flat tire, or what to consider when buying a bike.
The book is easy to understand, so even someone who's just get into casual cycling but would like to know a bit more will find this book useful. Hello, Bicycle also goes into detail for subjects like Bike Commuting, Cycling Etiquette and Biking with Children.
So if you're new to biking, or just need an informed refresher, Hello Bicycle is a great way to go.
